    It should be noted, the US Stock Market should be illegal, as the profits made, deny the American workers of wages and benefits they should otherwise receive for their hard work & dedication to the corporations.

    The second point is that stock investments rarely enter the US economy, so the stockholders tie up trillions of dollars (locked away in safe deposits/etc) that should be circulating in Americas economy, and available from banks for business and other types of loans that would stimulate the economy.

    Third, corporations are allowed to start these illegal stocks to gain capitol, that they may not deserve, and the very reason we have US Banks in this country. They avoid the scrutiny of financial experts who should review their portfolio and see their real worth and debt, etc., necessary for a bank loan to hand out capitol. In the end when they close the doors, the workers & families again suffer the losses.

    Here is what we are actually talking about. Off the sweat & blood of workers backs, the NYSE turned $18.86 Trillion in 2009, and the US Stock Exchange turned $63 Trillion. so how much was the American worker Left in gross income? $14,502,626.00. It should be a fucking crime.

    Capitalists always talk this bullshit line about working hard, but don't tell you where your hard worked wages & benefits actually went to. While most Americans live one paycheck away from poverty, the rich are scratching the dollars off the workers back. Based on this information, I draw the conclusion the Stock Market is unAmerican and a National Security threat to our economy and way of life. These rich parasites contribute absolutely nothing to America and should outlaw the entire scam.

    Economics are so simple when you don't have a clue about any of it, aren't they?

    From Each according to his ability. To Each according to his need.

    That is all we need to know. Right?

    Damn. This just might be the most uninformative thread made concerning the economy this forum has ever seen.
    There should be some kind of ceremony for this.

    I don't know why I would bother as you obviously have no idea what you are talking about but here it goes...

    Point one is gibberish.

    Point two is completly backwards. The stock market exists to put money IN the US econimy. In no way does it take it out. Stocks are not 'safe deposit/ect.' They are the EXACT oppisite, taking money that is not in the econimy and injecting into it.

    Point three is bullshit. Cooperations and small business uses stock as a way to gain investment capital to grow and many times continue to exist. Banks cannot service this need and many times these companies that need to sell off stock in order to obtain the required funds do not have the collateral to obtain a traditional loan and certainly do not have the immediate cash to begin making payments. Investments are made through stocks because of the IDEA that a particular company has and that idea needs more than wishful thinking in order to blossom into a full blown profitable company. Where are the workers losing in this deal? As a matter of fact they are only workers BECAUSE THE COMPANY CAN GET THE CAPITOL TO HIRE THEM FROM THE STOCK IT SELLS!

    Where is the American worker losing in this exchange? That is right, NOWHERE. Further, your links contain nothing that pertains to your points....

    What risk exposure does the "American Worker" assume here?

    The Stock Exchange is a necessary and integral part of America's Capitalist Economy.

    The real problem is the greed of corporations. The economy is like a farm, you have to spread around the fertilizer for anything to grow.

    If you send all that fertilizer to China, then you make their economy grow, but not ours. The rich are able to do that because they can buy politicians who make economic rape "legal".

    The right supports their politicians no matter how they hurt this country. Where in their "Plague on America" does it mention "jobs or growing the economy or even the Middle Class"?

    Instead, they only want to "stop Obama". In the meantime, Republicans can't seem to see anything wrong with Americans working for 100 bucks a month like they do in China.

    Right wingers constantly complain about what I write. But rarely do they say, "You are wrong because........and then actually GIVE a 'because".
